Lightly-raced maiden. Tongue strap on for 1st time cheekpieces on for 1st time, ninth of 11 in handicap at Kempton (8f, 16/1) 66 days ago. Visor on 1st time. Bit to prove at the moment.

15/2, effort easilt excused when seventh of 9 in handicap at Wolverhampton (8.6f) 10 days ago, badly hampered. Consistent on AW and should be thereabouts.

Forecast

Boston George (6/4), Pacino (11/2), Rocket Rod (6/1), My Ukulele (17/2), Al Khabeer (10/1), Made For All (14/1), San Rafael (14/1), Twin Appeal (18/1), Kingston Kurrajong (20/1), Beatbybeatbybeat (25/1), Mountain Rescue (50/1)

Verdict

BOSTON GEORGE is leniently treated and back in form, and found only one too good when staying on strongly over C&D last time, so he makes most appeal in an open race. Pacino and Beatbybeatbybeat both endured a troubled passage last time and should get more competitive with a clear run.

  1. BOSTON GEORGE (IRE)
  2. PACINO
